Common Galactic Calendar

The standard calendar, referred to as the Common Galactic Calendar or CGC, is a variant of the calendar originally used in urbanized Alti Maru before it spread elsewhere following the Third Galactic War. It is used to discuss historical dates and to also offer a standardized measure of time in a galaxy where all planets, by necessity of their different orbital paths around the sun, have varying local calendars. Though its zodiac is no longer in use, some may still find it interesting.

Under this system, dates are written in Day-Month-Year format.

The Common Galactic Calendar has twenty months of varying lengths, and their names are usually Standardized from the Morish names they were given, though some months have since acquired names more similar to Nicta-slio. The calendar was originally divided up across days to worship particular gods, but this distinction has since been lost.

Happily enough, the Common Galactic Calendar is 365 days long.
